Palliative Care

Palliative Care is a type of health care that focuses on a philosophy of care that aims to provide comfort and quality of life for individuals and families facing a life-limiting non-curative illness.  Palliative Care does not take place within four walls – services and support are provided for people where they are living: hospitals, personal care homes and in your own home by a variety of caregivers including physicians, nurses, pharmacists, home care workers, volunteers, pastoral care, families and friends.  Palliative Care helps individuals to achieve the best possible quality of life right up until end of life.

Components of this program include:

  • Pain and symptom management
  • Interdisciplinary team approach
  • Volunteer services
  • Grief and bereavement support
  • Information services
  • Education, Research, Resource Library
  • Community care and involvement
  • Care-giver support
  • Links with other programs/services
  • Resources for comfort care (e.g. specialized equipment)
